What are Face Serums and Which is Right for You?

What are Face Serums and Which is Right for You?

Face serums are lightweight products that have high concentrations of active ingredients. They have greater potential in providing faster and more visible results than just using cleansers and moisturizers because of the potentially higher amounts of active ingredients that may penetrate your skin. 

Because serums come with a thinner viscosity than moisturizers, they must be applied to your skin first. Most lighter serums should be sealed with a moisturizer so keep that in mind when layering your skincare products.

Serums offer a more potent solution to common skin concerns like premature aging, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, dullness, and discoloration. Depending on what you want to achieve with your skin, you can choose from different types of serums that come with different active ingredients. There are generally skin-brightening, anti-aging, hydrating, free-radical fighting, reparative, and acne-fighting serums available in the market today.

The best serum for 4 types of skin types

Dry Skin

Let’s start with dry skin. Dry skin is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages. People with dry skin may have rough, flaky, and scaly skin and may or may not experience itching. There are many different factors that contribute to having dry skin. Hormones, genetics, age, the climate, and certain health conditions may lead to having dry skin.

The perfect serum to relieve dry skin is one that both draws moisture into the skin and one that also locks it in. Hydrating serums are essential to restoring the skin’s suppleness and bounciness. 

Moisture B5 Serum

The Moisture B5 Serum intensely hydrates your skin to make it not only plump and nourish but also brighter, firmer, and smoother. With ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, panthenol (vitamin B), CoQ10, licorice root, green tea, and yeast extract, you’ll never go wrong with this serum to supercharge your skincare routine!

Nourish B Intensive Moisture Serum

Another powerhouse in hydrating serums is the Nourish B Intensive Moisture Serum. Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamins B, C, and E, this potent serum will instantly hydrate your skin for immediate relief and calming. It’s also perfect for the skin around your eyes and lips!

Oily Skin

Next up is oily skin. Your skin becomes oily when your sebaceous glands produce too much sebum. Sebum is produced by your body to naturally moisturize and protect your skin and hair. But too much sebum can clog your pores and cause acne. Not to mention, it makes your skin look greasy!

DNA Matrix 

The DNA Matrix Serum is perfect for those struggling with oily skin. With ingredients such as Ergothioneine, Glycosaminoglycans, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Chondroitin, and Lecithin, this product also will leave your skin radiant and protected from free radicals that damage the skin!

Colorlite Plus Corrective Serum

Great for all skin types, the Colorlite Plus Corrective Serum intensely brightens your skin if you’re experiencing discoloration, especially from post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It restores your skin’s radiant complexion after sun exposure and aging may have caused dark spots, discoloration, and uneven skin tone!

Sensitive Skin 

Sensitive skin is not a medical diagnosis by itself. It is a common skin concern that generally means that your skin may be more prone to reacting to cosmetic and skincare products. Having sensitive skin may also be a symptom of medical conditions like Eczema or contact dermatitis. If you have sensitive skin, you may need to pick and choose carefully which products to use as you may easily experience irritation and breakouts with the introduction of a new product to your skincare routine.

Moisture B5 

The Moisture B5 Serum is the perfect solution for those with sensitive skin. It is a fragrance-free serum that is ideal for all skin types. It is formulated with potent ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Niacinamide, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Zinc Gluconate, and Ubiquinone (CoQ10) to brighten and nourish your delicate skin!

DNA Matrix 

Another excellent solution for people who want to add a serum to their skincare routine but may be hesitant due to having sensitive skin is the DNA Matrix Serum. This serum leaves your skin radiant and glowing while keeping it balanced and protected against environmental stressors with ingredients like ergothioneine and glycosaminoglycans. 

Normal/Combo Skin

Having combination skin means some areas in your face are oily while others are dry. The t-zone is one of the most common problem areas for people with combination skin. It is composed of your forehead, nose, and chin. And for people who have combination skin, this area is where they commonly experience acne and blackheads. It is then essential to go with products that will hydrate the dry areas of your skin without causing more oiliness. You can also try products that target only a specific area like your t-zone. A good reminder for people with combination skin is that you don’t have to apply every product everywhere all the time.

Nu Stem Peptide Culture Serum

A serum that will be a great addition to your skincare routine if you have combination skin is the Nu Stem Peptide Culture Serum. It works well with all skin types and produces healthy, vibrant skin. It is a fruit-culture stem cell formula that works deep within the surface of the skin to deliver key nutrients to repair and renew your skin!

Collagen Stemedic Serum

Specifically formulated for Normal/Combo Skin, the Collagen Stemedic Serum is a firming and hydrating serum that leaves your skin plump and youthful-looking. With ingredients such as Panthenol, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin E, experience a tighter and lifted skin with regular use of this powerful serum!
